John Berger
Branch Manager

I started in the mortgage industry in 1991 and have been helping families purchase their dream homes ever since. I pride myself on taking the mystery out of residential mortgages and educating my clients on the entire loan process. Born and raised in Riverside, IL, I grew up working every summer as a caddy and developed my ""love/hate"" affair with the game of golf. I also learned at an early age how to interact and communicate with different types of people and personalities, which I have been using throughout my mortgage career. Outside of the office, I spend most of my time with my wife and kids and dog Gordy. I enjoy swimming and golf in the summer and platform tennis in the winter, but with a ""baker's dozen-sized"" family, there is always an occasion to spend time with family.
